What if you just clone a product and make a "better" version of that? You still need a list to sell to. So I guess it doesn't mean much.
Having a product with no way to market it or vice versa means you have no business.

In a profitable business product and marketing are linked and should both be considered at the start, as op says.

Yep that's what I meant. Just 1 idea :) Thank you for answering to all these questions.
Regarding your answer to the (4), do you have example of stuff companies are spending more than 10k/mo ? I'm just thinking of ads/recruiting/buying leads.

Can you give me your opinion on which idea you would pursue out of these 5 ideas for instance ?

1. An instagram scrapper which could easily be sold to some niche (real estate ? restaurant ? etc.) :

2. This one which helps Find & Verify Email Addresses in Seconds : https://www.sideprojectors.com/project/23072/find-verify-email-addresses-in-seconds

3. A schedule webapp for social media like this one : https://www.oneupapp.io/

4. Wordpress/html templates which consist in hero section to collect email at a 5% rate minimum (see screenshot-

5. A marketplace where you can hire pre-screened dev/designer/marketers/anything like this : https://flexiple.com
Hi again,

All of the projects you've listed should be checked by people reading this thread, who want to build their own projects, for inspo - good contribution, thanks!
Regarding companies that spend more than 10k a month on ads or tech, simply look at 10-15+ headcount on Linkedin. There are many other ways, but that's the simplest for starting out lead gen.

I don't like 2-3-4. There is too much competiton and are low ticket products/services. If you like that, go with it though.
Number 1 is nice, maybe don't call it an Instagram scraper but "Real Estate Lead Gen through Instagram" or something. Make it niche and charge well.
Last one is a startup in itself, needs a totally different mindset & approach.

A team I have worked with has found a thing like this https://www.scopeinc.com/
This startup has collected $5.6m in 3 funding rounds.
Looks like a simple form to connect professionals with each other.
But we are not talking about startups here I guess. :)

Well, they can't keep staying a simple form as a product - 3 funding rounds and $5.6M is a bad sign, too.
I don't like startups as much as I did, I like moving very fast and focusing on different things at the same time, maybe in the future!

What kind of data from insta would you sell to realtors ?
However this data could be used to contact people in a certain niche to sell them something. As we usually do on linkedin

I meant insta is mainly for entertainment and I can't see some valuable data there you can sell to realtors who are mostly searching for houses to sell.
Insta is good for cpa shit though.

With that mindset, you're right.
With mine, not.

I don't know who's right or not that's not important we're just here to discuss and see what we can improve together.
Thanks for your thread though, very interesting.

August 10 Update

We've started working on a new tool for creative people, to summarize. It will help them increase their subscription revenues drastically and will be a monthly subscription tool. Connected with very prolific & successful individuals and companies about the topic, things are looking great.
Seems like this tool will start making 6-figures/mo in 2nd-3rd month already. I love wins like this, but again, you never know until money hits your bank account. Nevertheless, will be worth the investment we've made by folds.

I've been contacted by many people here, some of you really have the potential to build their own empire of micro SaaS businesses. Keep yourself on the lane & win my brothers.

this is wrong there is business opportunities on insta in almost every niche you just need to be able to scrape relevant info

Yes but honestly who goes to insta to make business with realtors...
You'll have better luck making money on insta selling wigs or makeup (which is great btw)

like i said you can make money off insta off any niche you just need to scrape relevant info for your niche. A quick example https://www.instagram.com/bondnewyorkrealestate/?hl=en has 7k followers that's 7k leads ready for relators/house owners/ house sellers

Curious to know what your catalyst was to switch up and try and make it big? Was there a moment where you felt like you cumulated enough knowledge to think bigger, or was it a gradual shift?

Good question - it seemed to me we can go bigger. I felt totally ready and that's why decided to gear up.
I smell bullshit in this thread
Go on snoob, listening :)
